The Ingenuity Network’s series of workshops and events for SMEs continues to grow in popularity, as we endeavour to share some of the knowledge and expertise from The University of Nottingham with the local business community. Our latest workshop titled ‘Doing Business Online‘ took a look at some of the important legal issues that all companies trading on the web should consider.
Getting your policies right
Dr Richard Hyde from the University of Nottingham’s School of Law gave an overview of getting your policies right and the underlying T’s & C’s and privacy policies that all businesses operating online must have in place. A former practising solicitor for Brown Jacobson LLP with a focus on Risk and Regulation, Richard now works as an Assistant Professor at the University of Nottingham and was recognised in 2015 via the Dearing Award for outstanding achievements in enhancing the student learning experience. It was with great delight, therefore, that we welcomed Richard back for the third time (having previously delivered sessions on Consumer Rights and Contract Law) to share his expertise with our network members.
Know the risks!
There was much discussion amongst the 22 delegates that attended about how all of this affects their own companies and Richard’s insights really opened our eyes to the potential pitfalls of doing business online.
“Richard was very knowledgeable and tried to answer every question thoroughly.”
“This was very helpful to SMEs.”
“A great workshop, lots of questions and answers, not just a presentation.”
